Re: The term Anorak

"Anorak" is a British slang which refers to a person who has a very strong interest, perhaps obsessive, in niche subjects. This interest may be unacknowledged or not understood by the general public. It is often suggested that Andy Archer coined the phrase in reference to the fans who would watch the ships from the shore in all weathers and wearing anoraks. Trouble with that is the trainspotting fraternity have been doing similar for decades before that time.
